DON'T PUT YOUR SHOES UNDER YOUR BED AT NIGHT OR YOU'LL HAVE
NIGHTMARES.

Submitter comment: EXPLICIT INTERDICTION
MY SISTER-IN-LAW TOLD ME THAT WHEN SHE WAS YOUNGER, SHE PUT
HER SHOES UNDER HER BED ONCE AND THAT NIGHT SHE HAD A
TERRIBLE NIGHTMARE; SHE WOKE UP IN A COLD SWEAT, YELLING AND
SCREAMING.
SINCE THAT NIGHT, MY SISTER-IN-LAW HAS VOWED NEVER TO PLACE
HER SHOES UNDER HER BED AGAIN.
